Records management processes are embedded in an increasing number of companies as a means to manage risk and cost. Records managers, who are often dually qualified as archivists, are able to set up and implement records management programs at relatively low cost to the organization but with great strategic benefits. The Archives and records management program is invaluable in providing a theoretical foundation for practical experience, and in providing insight into the wider archives and records profession. The varied experience and different academic strengths of the course tutors help to provide students with a well-rounded educational experience.
